me now is karl rove. welcome to the studio. >> thanks for having me here. the hannity headquarters. sean: i like that. let's start with the poll numbers and you brought the black board and let's look. >> this is the backdrop. his job approval in the fox poll, 53-40 approve, disapprove. but among independents, 49-44 and that is a shift from a few weeks ago when it was 54-38. so in a matter of three weeks, it has declined among independents and you see that same decline in independents in health care reform. 34% approve. 49 disapprove. among independents, 29-50 and in july it was 33-43. sean: i want to stay on that number, because the gal up poll shows, 2-1 independents have moved away from obamacare, why do you think that is happening? >> should we do something about the deficit or health care as the fox poll asked. 57% of overall said, let's do something about the deficit, 34% said health care. among the independents, 59-32. what we had was a flood of spending, $787 billion stimulus, the schip bill, the omnibus spending bill. we had $350 billion in the bank rescue bill, which he vo

man's claims that we are not alone. "hannity" starts right now. all right. the keg at the white house is running on empty. the stools are up, the bartenders, they're turning the lights off but now just one day removed from the highly anticipated white house beer summit between president obama, harvard professor henry gates and police sergeant james crowley, is the controversy now over? now, throughout this ordeal, one thing is certainly clear. a rookie president, unnothingly -- unnothingly waded into a firestorm when he said the cambridge police department acted stupidly. that launched a local issue into the national headlines and now may be responsible for bringing the president's approval ratings down. and i'm joined now by pollster, frank luntz is with us. thanks for being with us. >> thank you, sean. sean: why don't we -- we'll start our way and move our way backward, all right? let's go back. this is sergeant crowley immediately yesterday after the big beer brouhaha. here's what he had to say. >> we had a cordial and productive session with the president, vice president and profe

animus against the man. sean hannity is a republican. it is obvious that he does not like president obama. and thinks his policies are bad. but, in totality, with shepard smith coming at 7:00. with bret baire coming at 6:00, you have a presentation that's not overtly hostile to president obama. what we -- what the contention is is that we glorify the protesters. but that's bull. we just don't demean them like all the other networks do. so i'm trying to get in my mind why the obama people don't see this as a negative toward them. a fight with fox hurts them. helps our ratings, hurts their ratings. but they continue, i think, to make an issue of it. >> well, i mean, the one time during the presidency was the one interview did with john harwood. now, i know other cable networks when they hear the president say cable chatter think the president is talking about them. many think the president is talking about us. during one of his recent town meetings, he said, you know, if you go across cable and you stop your remote at a certain channel you know you hear critical things. bill: of course that

delivered through glenn beck, bill o'reilly, and sean hannity. bill: totally absurd. i have never received a republican talking point in my life. cbs should be ashamed to use a dishonest sound bite like that. the battle lines have been drawn as the nation is deeply involved in the most intense political debate in years. president obama has the power of his office and most of the peed i can't squarely behind him. the folks have, the folks, we will see who prevails. that's the memo. now for the top story tonight. the latest poll numbers. according to a just released opinion dynamics poll 49% of americans now oppose obama care. just 34% favor it. and when asked if they are satisfied with the way things are going in america. 61% of americans say they are not satisfied just 3% say they are. and in a rasmussen poll, the president's job approval rating. joining us from los angeles doctor who treeches at occidental university and scott rasmussen. it's a pretty stunning last four weeks. you can put it in perspective for us? >> the president's numbers have been slipping steadily. he was at 53%, the
